Pros: get to have a mixture of skills whilst working for the company
Cons: not enough hours
A typical days work for me at Tesco, would be to work the newspapers, first thing in the morning, placing the inserts into the papers before selling them, and then I would help the manager random the checkout tills and the self service tills, after completing this I then bake the bakery items whilst maintaining excellent health and safety and food hygiene – more... measures. After this I then stand at the checkouts serving customers with the best customer service skills I can provide to the best standard the company desires whilst working the delivery as in when it comes into the store. I work very closely with the other members which are in my team. – less

General Assistant, Nights (Current Employee), Hailsham, ENG – February 19, 2014
Working for tescos is a great way to meet new people and learn and communicate within a customer service work place. Working nights, the hardest part was battling your body clock and staying awake but due to unnatural hours that will come as no surprise. The management are always helpful and willing to work side by side with you.
